Get your Himalayan Salt Now
As you cruise down the aisle in your health shop or grocery stall, your eye will be drawn to something a little out of the ordinary. Although it does look like a type of salt it’s much prettier than the conventional stuff. It’s Himalayan salt. It’s a variety of different colors of pretty pink. But is there more to this salt than meets the eye? Is this type of salt more than just a pretty face? You bet it is!!!!
What is Himalayan Salt
Himalayan salt is a type of rock salt that is mined in the Himalayan Mountains. There was an ancient sea (referred to as the ‘primal sea’) near the Himalayas which evaporated, leaving salt behind. The mountains grew and rose high above these layers of salt. Incredible pressure and intense temperatures over millions of years led to the formation of what we now know as Himalayan salt.
It is a pure, natural salt that is completely untainted by chemicals or pollutants. Some of the salt crystals are a translucent white color, while others are a pink or reddish color. And whilst it is very attractive, it is the benefits of Himalayan salt that have been taking the health industry by storm. These pink salt crystals are loaded with nutrients and energy that will help your body function at its optimum.
The benefits of Himalayan salt
Himalayan salt contains all 84 elements founds in your body. These are the same minerals and trace elements that were in the primal ocean – the origin of all life. This is what gives this salt its incredible healing powers – it provides our bodies with energy and life force. It regenerates all the cells, organs and systems in our bodies.
Our blood contains water and salt and can be compared to the salty solution of the primal sea. This is important because it means that this type of salt is ideally suited to restoring your body to its prime natural healthy state. Therefore, the benefits of Himalayan salt are that it:
- Restores healthy pH levels in your neurons and other cells
- Regulates your body’s water content
- Helps to generate hydroelectric energy in your body’s cells
- Regulates your blood sugar levels
- Reduces the signs of aging
- Absorbs nutrients in your digestive system
- Improves your respiratory health and sinus problems
- Prevents muscle cramps
- Promotes bone strength
- Promotes natural restorative sleep
- Improves your libido
- Improves your vascular health
- Regulates your blood pressure (when taken with pure spring water)
As you can see, all the benefits of this amazing salt are to do with helping your body to function just as it should. It restores your health and energy, empowering you to take control of your physical health and give your body what it needs. Importantly, Himalayan salt is not to be associated with the more negative effects of consuming regular table salt (sodium chloride). Because it is pure and natural and contains all the elements your body needs, Himalayan salt is far superior to any other type of salt.
Many Uses of Himalayan Salt
The most obvious use of Himalayan pink salt is as a substitute for ordinary table salt. Other uses for this salt in the kitchen include using it in brine and to preserve meat. Surprisingly, large blocks or slabs of this salt are used as preparation surfaces and serving dishes. These large blocks can also be heated and used as cooking surfaces.
A great idea is to make Himalayan salt sole to drink on a daily basis. Take a glass jar and fill a quarter of it with Himalayan salt (either ground or course). Fill the jar to the top with pure spring water or filtered water. Screw on a plastic lid, shake, and leave it to settle overnight. If there is some salt lying on the bottom of the jar, then you know that your water is properly saturated. This is Himalayan salt sole. Every morning upon waking, mix one teaspoon of the sole into a glass of room temperature water. Remember to avoid using a jar with a metal lid and any metal utensils such as teaspoons.
This might sound strange, but it’s also used in bath products. You can add Himalayan salt to your bath as a way to rejuvenate your skin. The nutrients in this salt will soothe sore muscles and stimulate your circulation. The experience is relaxing and healing for both your body and your mind. Some use Himalayan salt as the basis for a body scrub, adding a carrier oil and some essential oils for a truly healing product.
More unusual still is the use of large crystals as lamps. A Himalayan salt lamp consists of a single large salt crystal that is carved out. A candle or incandescent light bulb is then placed inside the crystal to create a lamp. As is the theme with this salt, the benefits of a Himalayan salt lamp extend beyond the aesthetic. Himalayan salt lamp benefits are quite extraordinary. Yes, they do create a warm, attractive, ambient glow. As such, they make ideal night lights. But it’s more than that.
These lamps actually purify the air. And it gets better… When lit, these lamps heat up. When the salt crystals are heated they produce negative ions. In a nutshell, what this means is that they emit positive energy into the air. It’s the same effect as you experience near a thundering waterfall, pounding waves, on a mountaintop, or after an incredible thunderstorm. What does this mean for you in your home or office?
These lamps are known to help eliminate incongruent energies from electricity (also referred to as dirty electricity). I keep several of these lamps in my office and around my computer to offset all of the harmful energies that are produced by my computers and monitors. They make great night light too especially in a child’s room.
These lamps create an environment that is calm, clear and full of positive energy. Sounds amazing? It is!
Please pass the salt. No, not that salt, the pretty pink Himalayan Salt…
